As artists and musicians we always have to fight to discover that sweet spot. The sweet spot being the perfect blend of creativity, relevance and infectiousness. When coming up with the concept of this song it was of course during a time of unrest in the African American community. The turmoils of 60s seemed to rear its ugly head once again, and in an age where no one can hide from social media scrutiny, the issue is inflated 100 fold. So as usual, I took an ugly situation and attempted to make something beautiful.
It was an honor to work with a legend such as Kweli and to share the canvas with Huff. Will Blaze’s amazing vocals were the final touch added to this incredible piece of art. Hip Hop has been and will forever be story of the Black American experience. Though it may had lost its way, we are bringing it back. Its the Return.
